A WOMAN was pushed to the ground and then punched in an incident in Cardenden.

The assailant was Jillian Livingston, 37, of McGregor Avenue, Lochgelly.

She has admitted that on April 11, at an address in Cardenden, she assaulted the woman by pushing her, causing her to fall to the ground and then punched her on the body to her injury.

Livingston was not present at the hearing in Dunfermline Sheriff Court and the guilty plea was submitted by her solicitor, David McLaughlin.

The court was told Livingston was already on a restriction of liberty order.

Sheriff Alastair Brown called for reports and sentencing was deferred until June 17.
